Business Meets Party



Sweater (Gap); Skirt & Necklace (Limited); Blazer (Kiss/NY);
Shoes (Franco Sarto find at Marshalls)
Ryan Seidel Photography

This skirt just looks like it belongs at a party... it's short, fun, and filled with shimmery gold.  Instead of going to a party, it went to work.  And so I balanced out my party skirt with my serious black blazer.  I sort of feel like those people who do video conferences from home and wear suits on top and pajamas on bottom.  Even though I am split between work and party... my heart always belongs to the party :)
